BP This Week: Stephen Hawking and Scientism


John Stonestreet

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer explore the worldview of the late and brilliant Stephen Hawking: Scientism. Despite contributing so much to physics, Hawking offered easy answers to hard questions science couldn’t answer, and declared philosophy dead while engaging in a lot of philosophy, himself.

Our hosts also suggest a unique angle on the gun control  debate, remembering Chuck Colson’s maxim that we will either be governed by our conscience or by constables. Are Americans capable of governing themselves anymore? Or are stricter regulations on the Second Amendment and other freedoms inevitable if we continue to descend into moral chaos?
